Excitement continues to build for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, even as you continue to point out that the writer-director is trampling on sacred ground—namely, your childhood, and the sole presence of male Ghostbusters contained therein. And you’re not wrong, because you remember those two movies very well, and they were big-time sausage fests, except for Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts. (But they were cool, because Sigourney murders aliens, and Annie was on the beloved children’s series Designing Women.) But now you’re really going to be outraged, because the new Lego Ghostbusters set is here, and they’re chock-full of women, threatening your Lego masculinity. Just wait until your Lego parents hear about this travesty.

Called “Ghostbuster Ecto-1 & Ecto-2,” it contains all the key elements of testosterone-challenging villainy, like miniature plastic figures, plastic forms of transportation, and other such powerful talismans. As you eat your Lego Hot Pocket, grab your Lego mouse and scroll through some of these images of what the set contains.
